My beautiful DS1 will be 4 in a few days and is a healthy happy kid. He's always been stocky but recently has also gotten a little chubby around his middle. He's 110cms and around 22-23kg.
He went to the Dr recently for something unrelated and the Dr informed me that his BMI made him obese. Am attaching a pic of him - I don't think he's obese by any means and am not overly concerned but as I can notice he's a little chubby around his tummy I'd like to encourage him to be a little more active. He already eats very well.
Any suggestions for forms of exercise I can try? Or ways to encourage him to be more active generally in a healthy enjoyable way? I've tried him in kiddy kicks soccer but he didn't enjoy it... Or swimming lessons. He's not interested in riding a bike so far and when walking complains he's tired after a little while.
I take him to the park every day to climb and play and i take him 'exploring' in nature as much as possible. Am thinking of just trying to explore further and encouraging him and his dad to kick a ball around more often, but any other suggestions?
